    Really, whoever made that up must have smoked his brain away. Ok for little children and people that just go for a "walk" on a bike. But if you use it as a means of transport, then it's just dangerous to go on the sidewalk. What do you think would happen if I went 20-30 km/hour amid of pedestrians? Just crazy.
    It should always be illegal to ride your bike on the sidewalks (except for little children on their play bikes that is), and only illegal to go on certain streets where it is actually too dangerous to ride a bike (like highways). But then there are no sidewalks along highways either, are there?

    WD-40 and Penetrating Blaster ARE NOT LUBRICANTS
    I recently took a bike maintenance course. The above remark was one of the first things the instructor told us.

    I have to admit that it was new to me.

    Many years ago I worked in a pawn shop. We always had a can of WD-40 around. To lube up all the machinery we got it? Nope. To clean it.

    It also works great for getting off sticker goo...as in impossible to remove labels and price tags. Spray on some WD-40, wait a few seconds, and wipe off.
